Geological Sciences, MNS

The School of Earth and Space Exploration participates in the program leading to the MNS in geological sciences. This transdisciplinary degree program is designed to meet the needs of professionals seeking a graduate-level degree. The program offers the opportunity for transdisciplinary graduate training in the natural sciences (i.e., biological sciences, mathematics and physical sciences) and cognate areas.

The degree program is especially suited for individuals who desire professional training rather than research training. Because of designed flexibility, the degree also offers the opportunity for individualized professional graduate programs depending upon the backgrounds and goals of the students. Students are expected to emphasize coursework in two or more areas of specialization. The program must be transdisciplinary.
